I'll throw up some pics in a sec to convince you...

I am a bit confused as to why one would want to go from 4x108 to 5x108 ... 5x108 is another oddball Ford bolt pattern without many aftermarket options too.

Almost nothing used 4x108, but there were quite a few fords, some jaguars, and a ton of volvos that use 5x108. Tire rack alone has over 160 different 5x108 pattern wheels, and the new gen foci have very nice looking factory wheels in 5x108.

Nope, 5x110 at most. That's why I stayed at 5x108.

Already bought my wheels, was initially going with newer 2012/2013 wheels but decided otherwise at the last minute. Went with ESM 004 (BBS LM reps).
